Climate change is now critical, says the Climate Commission (the doomsday hoax escalates)

Climate change is now critical, says the Climate Commission
Malcolm Holland, Padraic Murphy
From: Herald Sun

"THE atmosphere is warming, the ocean is warming, ice is being lost from glaciers and ice caps, and sea levels are rising."

This is the dramatic conclusion of scientists who say climate change cannot be denied, and carbon offsetting is not enough to stop it.

The findings are included in the first report by the Government's newly created Climate Commission.

It warns people are to blame for rising temperatures, with the last decade the hottest on record.

"The biological world is changing in response to a warming world," The Critical Decade: Climate Science Risks and Responses report says.

"Human activities - the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation - are triggering the changes we are witnessing in the global climate."

The problems are so critical, the report says, Australia must "decarbonise our economy" and move to clean energy sources by 2050, and if steps aren't launched soon, "we will struggle to maintain our present way of life".

The hell you say...

I would have thought their report would have said, "There is no man-made climate change, everything's fine, let's pack up and go home". /s

ABSOLUTE SCIENTIFIC DATA FROM REPUTABLE SOURCES, have been posted time and again on FR... data that refutes every single claim made. I tell these ecoterrorists that the sooner life ends on earth... the sooner people like them will die and quit trying to enforce stalinism on the people that inhabit the planet... I WOULD RATHER BE DEAD THAN RED!

How many times has this planet been doomed by these global warming/cooling/climate change kooks? I’ve lost count.

Bull Obama.

There are classes of idiocy...

There’s public school education idiocy.

There’s politician idiocy.

There’s Obama-level idiocy (we’re talkin’ scientific notation here to adequately describe the stupidity.)

And, way at the top, there’s UN, world-level unspeakable idiocy. Truly googol-level stupidity on a level that even Obama cannot reach. That’s the climate change types.

Remember that the ONLY place climate change idiots get their funding is from governments. What the h*ll do you THINK they’re gonna say?

Imagine this:
You take your child to the local orthodontist and he examines your child's teeth and proclaims, "Hey, they look great. You don't need me."
Trust me when I tell you, that NEVER happens.
Scientists who are handed "grant" money to find "global warming" are NEVER going to say, "Hey, the planet looks great."

From the kickoff press release: Professor Tim Flannery, Chief Commissioner

Some Flannery quotes
“Picture an eight-storey building by a beach, then imagine waves lapping its roof.” That's a good story, but at 2.5 mm a year (down from 3mm a year prior to 2003) it will take 1300 years to get to the first storey.

“Hurricanes are becoming more frequent in North America.’’ wrong

“Polar bears are going to go with the ice cap. They’re not going to actually last that long.” wrong again. The northern polar populations are all doing better except for the overhunting in a few cases. The two southern populations on Hudson Bay are not, but that is easily balanced by having a longer active season further north.

“the ongoing drought could leave Sydney’s dams dry in just two years” That was part of the reason why the dam levels weren't lowered even when it was obvious that they were going into a La Nina rainy period. That exacerbated the recent floods. Idiots like him will get everyone killed.

“Sea levels are rising”

Sure they are. That's why the Maldives Islands, famous for being the first country to disappear beneath the waves, and despite their underwater cabinet, are building new resort hotels.

(PS--the sea level there has not risen.)

The hoax is in “critical” condition because more folks are recognizing it as a hoax.

What the need is for people to quit thinking and asking questions, accept their lies and subscribe to their agenda.

Shortly after WW2 we were assured that coal would soon run out. Now they’re saying it’s too dirty to use in industry. What a difference 60-70 years makes. Pile on some more sh-t you expurts An ‘’expurt’’ is a drip under pressure funded by the taxpyers.

Yes, summer comes to the northern hemisphere.

Show us a reputable source that says there is no deforestation occurring on this planet. Logging companies don`t count as a reputable source.

Of course deforestation is occurring, but the assertion is that it causes the observed changes in climate. Since climate is always changing and has done so over countless millennium, you have to do more than simply make some cult based claim that man is cause of changes in nature.

The evidence presented is based on climate models, rather than actual observations of physical processes. These models are manipulated to produce the output that suits the assumptions of the climate change cult. They will continue to do so because socialists governments of the world are willing to pour obscene amounts of money into climate research the produces results that support their political agenda.

As for forests, they are renewable resources, excepting old growth forests which may be worth preserving for various reasons. But, most forests of the world are not old growth and can be harvested and replanted forever. As CO2 rises, they will grow more quickly, so from a forest perspective, man's contribution of CO2 is a good thing.

I am talking about CO2 content dropping and Ice packs growing in the Antarctic and Ice packs thickening in the Arctic... and seas not rising and temperatures dropping. Now, go to Brazil and do something about the Rain Forests.

I have lost count, also. I don’t know why the media give those rapture cult freaks such a hard time, when one can get government money for this type of hysterical nonsense.
